It seems like just yesterday the very first of these cuddly critters was released. Who could have foreseen just how popular this series would become over the last 10 years? Perhaps it’s due to the one-year-only designs, like this year’s koala, shown sitting contentedly in the grass next to a eucalyptus tree. Perhaps it’s the ability to get these coins struck in fantastic high relief from five full ounces of 99.9% fine silver, bearing a legal-tender value of $8 Australian and a gorgeous proof finish? Whatever it is, we can’t wait to see what the next 10 years will bring!
